REVIEW - The Seeing Place by Aziza Eden Walker

The Book
Release Date: 14 February 2016
Goodreads Link

Hot-shot producer Thuli Poni is holding auditions for her latest play in Cape Town. Andile Sebe is an up-and-coming star, just waiting for his big break. Thuli casts Andile and challenges him to link his painful past with the role he is portraying, leading him to open up to her. The two fall for each other and a passionate romance ensues.

But when auditions open for Sins of the Fathers, the most-watched TV show in South Africa, Thuli turns cold. Will she play a part in Andile’s rise to fame, or will she hinder it?

This is a story about how love can triumph against the odds if we stay humble, take risks and are willing to learn. The Seeing Place offers a very different kind of romance – between a powerful woman and a man who wants something only she can offer.

My Review 2 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book is one i struggled with and i ended up having to skim read it as i do hate not to finish a book.

The book could have done with a pronunciation page along with a page that explained what some of the words meant.  As this is a South African author some of the words used meant absolutely nothing to me, such as the endearments etc so i was like "What"?

Thuli is a 28 year old with money who is in cape town for audition for her play.  When she meets Andile the attraction is instant from both sides and we get both points of view.  However the story jumps from each persons point of view without warning and often jumps in time without warning which can lead to initial confusion.

Not an author i will be reading again.
